David Reid is Magog, a powerful warrior armed with an energy lance.
The defining tragedy of David Reid's young life was when his parents, his sister and some of his friends were kidnapped during the Parademon invasion which caused the formation of the Justice League, and he never saw them again. David needed someone to blame, so he blamed the metahumans.
Five years later, living as a homeless boy, Reid was outraged by the news that Superman and Wonder Woman had become a couple. His rage was the catalyst necessary for an occult experiment by Circe, who found him and forcibly bonded him with the magic artifact that she normally used to create her Beastiamorphs. The artifact changed Reid, in mind and body, though as the pain caused him to black out, Circe assured him that he would eventually remember all the important things.
Surfacing soon after as an amnesiac with amazing powers who called himself Wonderstar, Reid decided to become a superhero. However, soon after he encountered Superman and Wonder Woman, his rage surfaced. He attacked the two, injuring Superman with his magic, as his rage began to surface. He renamed himself Magog, as he tried to beat the reason for his rage out of the two heroes.
